Look up on youtube: How to install a guitar nut

Then just do whatever applies to you.

OR you could just glue it with super glue.

It's a pretty easy fix. Like somekid said, YouTube or some glue.

If you glue it back in, do NOT use SUPER GLUE!!! You stand a good chance of taking pieces of fingerboard with it the next time it has to come off, and any guitar tech that has to touch it will curse the day your mother met your father. Use a good quality wood glue, like Titebond, or equivalent.

I should report you for the attempted murder of two forum members by means of making them choke on food from laughing too hard. One of the best things I've read all day.

On topic, no super glue. It's a sin, and you will burn in hell if you use super glue (to be honest, I don't know why; I've learned to trust this forum on some things).

+1. Just plain white glue, and only a tiny drop. It’s much better for the nut to pop right off than to not be able to remove it later.

Perhaps you should use these as a replacement...

Oh Super glue works just fine. The thing is, it works TOO well. Next time you have to change the nut it sits there like... well... glued. And wont come of without crowbar and you can figure out why its bad for the neck.

You might as well improve the guitar while you're at it; get an Earvana compensated nut and glue that in with plain PVC.

I'd say go for it if, but if the OP doesn't play first position open chords, then it's really not even worth the higher cost.

They're like, £15-20 and they help around the 5th-9th frets more than anywhere

Don't ever use super glue on a nut. Just reinstall it if it still feels a little loose just put a little titebond original wood glue on it that way it can be replaced later if needed.

I don't really know anyone who plays open chords outside of the first position, I thought everyone just uses barre chords

Well, I'm definitely not the authority on playing the guitar or anything. I just didn't know people did that.
